Volume in Collection

A container element for the volume metadata for a book in a collection, for example, to hold the <volume-number>. This element may repeat, for example, with a different language, for each set of volume data or for each of many usages.


Volume information for books, encyclopedias, and book series is not the same kind of “volume” as the <volume> that is part of the NISO JATS journal metadata (limited in BITS to bibliographic citations and similar referencing elements). Large works such as an encyclopedia may be divided into physical, logical, or semantic volumes. A book may be published as a monograph as well as part of one or more collections or monographic series. So volume information is needed at the series (collection) level. In addition, books of articles are published that are similar to the <volume> in a journal article and such volume metadata needs to be specified at the book level, as a <book-volume-number>.
